The Shard currently dominates the London skyline, but won’t do for much longer. A number of new skyscrapers are sprouting up, especially in the City, including 100 Bishopsgate, 122 Leadenhall Street (aka The Cheesegrater), and 20 Fenchurch Street (or Walkie-Talkie). They’ll mostly be completed within the next twelve months, apart from The Pinnacle/Helter-Skelter, which is currently on hold. This artist’s impression by Hayes Davidson gives an idea of how the skyline will ultimately look.
